SILVER AND GOLD ANGEL FOOD CAKE

1 1/3 cups cake flour
1 3/4 cups sugar
3/4 tsp salt
1 3/4 cup (approx 12) egg whites
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
6 egg yolks
2 tbsp grated orange rind

Position oven rack in the lower 1/3 of oven. Heat oven to 375 degrees.

Mix 3 tbsp of the flour and 3 tbsp of the sugar in a medium bowl; set aside.

Sift together the remaining flour, 3/4 cup sugar and the salt. Sift twice onto waxed paper.

Beat egg whites and lemon juice in a large bowl at medium speed of electric mixer until soft peaks form. Gradually beat in remaining sugar until glossy peaks form. Beat in vanilla.

Add egg yolks and the grated orange rind to the flour mixture in a medium medium mixing bowl. Beat at high speed until pale yellow and ribbons form when beaters are lifted, approximately 3 minutes.

Fold the sifted flour mixture into egg whites in 3 additions. Remove 1/3 of the whites mixture; fold into the yolks mixture.

Alternately spoon white and yellow mixture into ungreased 10-inch tube pan. Run thin long knife through batter swirling the mixtures together to marble.

Bake in a 375 degree oven 35 to 40 minutes until golden and a toothpick inserted in top comes out clean. Invert pan to cool. Remove cake from pan when cooled. Garnish with fresh berries, if desired.
